A Soft-Paste Sèvres Porcelain Powder Jar and Cover, 1758

With the factory mark enclosing the date letter F for 1759; painter’s mark.

A very unusual small-scale use of not one but two ground colours. This lavish decoration is more often seen on larger pieces of Sèvres porcelain at this time.

Height 6.8cm
